Le sort des blogueurs iraniens

Jeff Jarvis répercute un billet (en persan, mais traduit sur un blog collectif d’étudiants iraniens en Grande-Bretagne) de Mohammad Ali Abtahi, un réformateur iranien blogueur proche du président Katami. Il est aujourd’hui membre d’un organe de contrôle de la Constitution et c’est à  ce titre qu’il a participé à  une rencontre avec certains des blogueurs récemment emprisonnés: ils ont été passé à  tabac, sommés de confesser des turpitudes sexuelles (ou d’en inventer pour compromettre des réformateurs), d’autres ont cédé aux pressions et signés de faux aveux liant leur blog à  la CIA…
